Finally, summer! The garden is in full bloom and offers a cool and shady spot on hot summer days. The Hortus celebrates summer with Summer Evenings: from the 21st of June the garden and the Orangery-café will be open every Thursday and Sunday until 21:00 hrs. Relax at our terrace with a cool drink and have an evening stroll enjoying our unique plant collection. Or join some of our  evening activities: there are yoga sessions on Thursdays and beautiful classical concerts on Sundays. Check our programme page for information and tickets.

We also have a special summer tour for children.

Greenhouse concerts

Our Greenhouse concerts are back! This summer, the Hortus is once again hosting a series of classical concerts in the Palm greenhouse. Young talents form the classical music industry will share their vision on modern classical music. A lay down and listen concert is a unique and personal experience where all your senses are stimulated.  Bring your own mat or your favorite pillow and settle yourself in a nice spot in the greenhouse. Check our programme page for information and tickets.

This summer, our weekly evening yoga sessions on Thursdays will help you cool down.  Surrounded by ancient plants in our Palm greenhouse, yoga teacher Anna Wisniewska  (Movements Yoga) will guide you through the experience.
